5G ready to arrive: how it will evolve and the future

There has been greater interest and speculation in the evolution of 5G in recent years, even more so this year in 2018 5G is expected to enter the real scene. At the end of 2018, AT&T seems to launch 5G mobile to many selected markets. In addition, starting in Sacramento, CA, many cities will be introduced to fixed 5G as Verizon partners with Samsung. While alternative operators, T-Mobile and Sprint plan to enter the 5G scene for 2019 and 2020. In a National Security Report published by The White House, 5G wireless service is now included as an infrastructure priority.

So what is 5G?

5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology: the G stands out as the next generation, the 4G standard that was introduced in 2010. In December 2017, a formal standard was established that sets the specifications for 5G. Then, 5G, when it comes to download and upload speed, will exceed 4G standards 100 times. In addition to 5G, there will be less latency problems currently existing in the network. 5G results will be faster and connectivity will be more reliable, which will advance the next technology.

5G evolution implication

IoT and autonomous cars
With the evolution of 5G, autonomous cars will be safer, more pleasant and efficient. 5G has low latency, which will allow autonomous cars to be closely linked to other connected devices, such as the smart city infrastructure: traffic lights, etc. 5G will simplify the stress we are currently putting on 4G networks with the increasing number of connected devices. IoT will be much faster and more dynamic, as there will be a rapid transfer of massive data volumes. Without sacrificing performance, 5G will connect more and more devices.

Mobile innovation
As fast as mobile Internet is, there will also be an evolution in mobile innovation. With superior AR and VR experiences, they will not be seen or heard before mobile experiences that are not compatible with the current generation 4G technology. The current smartphone is not aligned with 5G, but as technology develops, there will also be tremendous growth in devices. In addition, ZTE has already announced that the company will bring 5G compatible phones by the end of 2018 or 2019. 4G has the tension of increasingly connected devices that will be relieved by 5G technology.

Internet at home
The technology will first be at stake with fixed 5G, so the Internet at home will enjoy many benefits. The most amazing features of 5G technology are that it does not imply an expensive investment in the way it is required to install the fiber optic cable. The 5G Home Internet will be completely wireless, allowing users to enjoy uncomplicated Internet experiences.

The future
After much waiting and consideration, 5G will surely be launched at the end of this year 2018. We can identify that some of the areas such as autonomous cars, Home Internet and Mobile Innovation will surely evolve with the evolution of 5G. However, in the long term, 5G will bring powerful innovations on the digital stage.
